Prepared internally, no external cost


The Annual Mortality report presents numbers of deaths occurring in calendar year 2017, by age and sex, and by causes of death. It also includes age-standardised mortality rates (ASMRs) to enable comparisons across time and between jurisdictions. 

In 2017:
  • there were 810 Jersey residents recorded as having died, comprising 420 deaths of males and 380 deaths of females
  • the crude mortality rate was 7.6 deaths per 1,000 population, and has been falling over time
  • the age-standardised mortality rate (ASMR) for Jersey was 880, significantly lower than the overall ASMR for England (959)
  • the average (mean) age at death for Jersey residents was 79 years; an increase of 12 years since 1960 (67 years)
  • cancer remained the most frequent cause of death, accounting for almost one in three (30%) of all deaths
